Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear copper hue with a nice head that faded to leave light sudsy halo.

S - Aromas of caramel, alcohol, vanilla, barrel, toffee. Loads of booze.

T - Taste is barrel galore, vanilla, bourbon, booze, caramel, toffee, quite boozy.The beer heeled better with more sips.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, a sipper for sure and quite boozy.

O - Overall this beer was incredibly boozy but tasty. Will age nicely.

Clear burnt orange/coppery colour with a short beige cap. Some soapy bubbles stuck around and the head left a few spots of lacing on the glass as it receded. Sweet, toffee aroma with vanilla and oak, a bit boozy but nicely balanced. Nice flavour too. Mild up front with notes of sweet malts and a hint of bitterness, then --- oak and vanilla and booze, oh my! Big finish with lingering bitterness and toffee/caramel sweetness, along with woody astringency and alcohol warmth. Heavy, almost sticky, body with low carbonation. This is a big beer, perfect for sipping. I may lay a couple of these away for the winter months.
